Quick. What one thing above all else (with one notable exception) do you need in order to be truly prepared for whatever is about to hit the fan? Yes, of course, you need your health!
(Notable exception: More than anything else, you need a good relationship with the Creator so that you can call upon Him and get help in your time of need. But this post is about health, so I won’t go into that here.)
Recognizing that my family and I needed a health upgrade, I took my friend Lorie’s advice and watched a 1994 video called “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” by Dr. Joel Wallach. After I was duly impressed by that, I looked at her website. Then I googled and sent myself lots of e-mails with links to articles and YouTube videos that were gradually helping me come to a conclusion.
I had discovered an incredible resource! A place where I could purchase (from myself, even) all the minerals and vitamins our bodies need that are not coming in our food, because we’ve depleted our soils and polluted our environment. Most of the products are supplements, of course, but I can also purchase minerals for the garden! And lots of other cool stuff…like…
- healthy chocolate,
- weight management packages,
- skin care products,
- products for pets,
- essential oils,
- food storage items,
- mineral make-up,
- Jordan Rubin’s Beyond Organic products,
- and much more–including jewellry and scrapbooking materials!
In the end, I concluded that I should join the company and share this information far and wide. Now I am sharing with you through my own affiliate website at Youngevity (aka my90forlife).
I hope you will recognize your need to restore your own health before whatever-it-is hits the fan, and visit Restore Your Health.
Give your body what it needs and it will heal itself!
I just watched an interesting YouTube video that you might find helpful. It’s by Kellene Bishop, the Preparedness Pro. On this occasion Kellene had a friend film one of her regular thrift store shopping trips while she commented on the value of various items. Check out Preparedness Pro Tips at the Thrift Store and don’t overlook other people’s comments and the comment I made, suggesting a few more things you can do with thrift store purchases! Here’s a comment I made on another post about thrift store prepping.

I just wanted to let you all know that I have just updated my Home and School Solutions website. Among other things I added numerous links to all the section favourite link pages, brought the various testimonial (introduction) pages up-to-date, and fixed all the broken links.
The major thing I did, though, is add a Blogs-Plus tab/page. If there is anything I want to add to the website that cannot be naturally included in any of the existing sections (Hebrew Roots, Health=Wealth, Home Schooling, Faith Matters, Desktop Publishing, Store and Services, or About Home and School Solutions) then I will put it here.
Since most of my activity and research in recent years has been in the areas of prepping and gardening, I have put material about these two areas on the Blogs-Plus page. You are invited to go there now and check out all the links I have provided for you.
Whooohooo. Kellene Bishop of Preparedness Pro has just announced she is doing a “100 Days of Prepping” series chockful of information in many different forms–videos, articles, books, forum, lists, etc.
Sometime during that period she will be unveiling her new cookbook, which I’ve been looking forward to for awhile because she believes in tasty food from her food stores, which is something I’ve been agonizing about, and since she is a very practical person I know these will be recipes I can really use.
Read all about it!
P.S. I don’t know what’s going to be included but I’m going to go out on a limb and assume the following categories will be mentioned somewhere in there. If not, please forgive me.
Ack! I just went through all the articles to this point (1-76) to see how many times I’ve already voted and I’ve already shot my wad! Did so before I even wrote this article “Cause That’s What Preppers Do”! I should’ve prepped by not voting for anyone just-in-case! But people have been writing such great stuff, I couldn’t help myself!
Anyway, I can’t vote anymore so you are going to have to do it for me! The competition is stiff, folks. There’s somebody with 162 votes already! Another one has 102 votes! There are several in the 30 to 70 range, and many in the 10 to 29 range! So if you really would like me to win something great (and there are many things I’d really like to have–Big Berkey, Sun Oven, WonderMill, even the buckets or the Tattler Lids) you’re going to have to work at it! You can vote FIVE TIMES each, so please do. Others have gotten their families and friends on board and they’ve all voted five times each! If they can do it, you can do it. Helping each other is what preppers do! Many, many thanks to all of you.
I’m attempting to win an awesome prize at PreparednessPro. If you’d like to help, please read the article entitled “Cause That’s What Preppers Do” that I just posted there and vote. Your comment is your vote. Many thanks!
After that, please look around the website. Kellene Bishop is the Preparedness Pro and she’s on a mission!
Just a quick note today because I’m still in catch-up mode. I just wanted to let you know that I signed up as an affiliate with Solutions From Science because I really like the various emergency solutions they offer and I thought you might, also. I’ve been watching these folks for awhile, but the thing that prompted me to finally jump through the affiliate hoop was their recent discount offer on Wise Food Storage. Can’t find that info right now, sorry, but if you are paying any attention at all to the news you will know that having an emergency food storage plan in place is important–even without discount codes. Do check out Solutions From Science’s Food Storage Solutions page. Maybe this solution is for you!
